Charity & Third Sector

The Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 was recently passed by Westminster for application in England and Wales. Although it is not yet fully in force it will provide greater regulatory powers to the Charities Commission south of the border. Although the Act will not apply to Scottish charities, Trustees should remind themselves of the equivalent powers of the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator (“OSCR”) in Scotland.

On 1st April 2016 the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) made some changes to the way it monitors charities in Scotland.  This note summarises the changes.
